Somehow, a “future’s so bright, gotta wear shades” reference seems appropriate in conjunction with the promotional campaign for NBC’s new comedy About a Boy — but don’t take our word for it.
Indeed, we’ve got your exclusive first look at key art for Jason Katims’ small-screen adaptation of the popular Nick Hornby novel (and subsequent 2002 Hugh Grant film) as well as the Peacock net’s Growing Up Fisher. The latter is a single-camera comedy that centers on a son (Eli Baker) who idolizes his blind father (J.K. Simmons) and enjoys his mom’s (Jenna Elfman) newfound adolescence after his folks divorce and, ultimately, grow closer.
About a Boy is slated to premiere Friday, Feb. 21 (10:30/9:30c), following Olympics coverage, before its regular time-slot kickoff on Tuesday, Feb. 25 (9/8c) after The Voice.
Growing Up Fisher will debut Sunday, Feb. 23 (10:30/9:30c), after the Olympics Closing Ceremonies, and then settle into its permanent spot on the NBC schedule starting Tuesday, Feb. 25 (9:30/8:30c)
